How can I sign up to alerts from the 8am Playbook?


If your institution has access to our HE service, that means you will be able to subscribe to the 8am Playbook, allowing you to keep up with the latest trends and policy analysis in higher education.

In order to receive the alerts, you will need to have a *Research Professional user account under your institution’s licence. If you have an account, you can switch on your alerts by logging in and doing one of the following:


1) You can click on the HE tab near the top of the page (next to News) – this will take you to the dedicated HE section of our service, where you will see a column on the right with a link to the 8am Playbook. After clicking this link, you will see an orange button near the top-right of the page that says Subscribe to 8am Playbook;
